Description

Say goodbye to stressful schedules, painful latching, and worries over milk supply. In the same sensible and sensitive voice that has made baby-led weaning a growing sensation, authors Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett show how easy nursing can be when you let your baby lead the way. This comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide will help you understand your baby’s unique, natural pattern and develop a trusting and healthy breastfeeding relationship. With the help of personal anecdotes and color photos from real moms, Rapley and Murkett explain how to:

• Get breastfeeding up and running in the first few weeks

• Hold your baby so that he can feed effectively

• Express and store milk efficiently

• Avoid or remedy sore nipples, mastitis, and other problems

• Wean at a natural pace

Breastfeeding shouldn’t be a struggle, and, if you stay in tune with your baby, it can be effortless. Baby-Led Breastfeeding will give you the tools to create a happy and fulfilling breastfeeding experience for you and your baby.

Review quotes

“Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett have done it again. They have produced another excellent book that puts babies in charge of how much they eat. Babies are competent! Mothers don’t have to be totally in charge of feeding. What an empowering message for new moms! Rapley and Murkett provide a great overview of breastfeeding, incorporating the latest research. This organized, easy-to-use guide will get you started. And if you encounter problems, the book offers many possible solutions. But Rapley and Murkett’s most important message is that babies know how to do this.”
Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, PhD, IBCLC, FAPA, Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Lactation and coauthor of Breastfeeding Made Simple, 2nd Edition

“Replete with practical insights, ingenious explanations, and oodles of good sense, this gem of a book will be indispensable to new parents.”

Baby-Led Breastfeeding is the much-needed, thorough precursor to Baby-Led Weaning. Baby-Led Breastfeeding is a complete, stand-alone resource, offering mothers research-based, accessible information on a wide range of breastfeeding-related topics.
